Instead of limiting vegetarian lunch options to garden salads and French fries, two school districts in Miami are altering lunch menus to offer students a variety of veg-friendly fare. To meet the growing demand for vegan options, the Miami-Dade school district introduced three additional vegan options. Students can now nosh on vegan chicken nuggets, veggie burgers, and hummus platters. The Broward school district offers vegan salads every day and a hot vegan option every week. Both schools make peanut butter sandwiches available for students and offer sunflower seeds as a vegan salad-topping alternative to meat and cheese.
